My Predicted AFC Championship Showdown (from Alex)

This years AFC Championship will (I think) be fought over by the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The New England Patriots Offense features Superstar Tom Brady who just returned from a knee injury that kept him from playing the entire season. He has a spectacular line, a pretty good HB, good TEs and three of the best WRs. The Patriots Only problem will be that Brady missed all but 1 game of the season so he might not be at his best.

The New England Patriots Defense features probably the best defensive line with Derrick Burgess, Richard Seymour, Ty Warren and Vince Wilfork. They also have LBs Jerod Mayo, Teddy Bruschi and Adalius Thomas. At CB they have Leigh Bodden, Terence Wheatley, Darius Butler. There Safety's are Patrick Chung, Brandon Meriweather and James Sanders.

The Pittsburgh Steelers Offense features Ben Roethlisberger who had a pretty good season last year and the years before. The Offensive Line is a solid group but not as good as the Patriots. They have TE Heath Miller who is one of the best at his position. They have WR Hines Ward, Santonio Holmes and the 1 year pro Limas Sweed. They have HB Willie Parker who is good.
The Pittsburgh Steelers Defense features a good solid D-line and they
added to it by drafted DT Evander Hood (from Mizzou). At LB they have James Harrison, Lawrence Timmons and James Farrior. At CB they have Ike Taylor and Deshea Townsend. At Safety they have the best SS in the League Troy Palamolu.
I think that it the Patriots have a better chance of winning because there O-Line is better and there D-Line is Better. Also there WRs are better.
